This is how I play the song! Suggestions and corrections welcome!
Note that in the intro and verse section, the bass walk up 
that goes F#m-Abm-A-B is not necessary and it sounds good just going from F#m to B.


[Intro]

B    C#m    B    F#m  Abm A x2


[Verse 1]

B                C#m           B
   Wait till the heat sets in
        F#m          Abm A   B
and the days grow long and thin
              F#m     Abm A        B   
it sets the traffic lights to swaying
       C#m
in the wind


[Verse 2]

B                C#m          B
   Run till your legs are sore
          F#m         Abm A      B
turn the lights on, lock the doors
                  F#m           Abm A  B
they’ll wait the whole night long to shake you
         C#m
to your core


[Chorus]

A                              B C#m Ebm
See how it burns and how it bends
     E        B                  F#m
the way it descends through the trees
              B
outside your room
         A                E
how the dog days trouble you
         B
and the cool sigh
        A
of the low tide
       F#m    A         B
how it only leaves you blue

B    C#m    B                F#m  Abm A 
            Ah-ah ah-ah-ah oohhh


[Verse 3]
        
B             C#m           B
  Out in the pines and firs
            F#m       Abm A B
there were spies and saboteurs
             F#m         Abm A    B
you spent a night this side of breaking
        C#m
taking turns


[Verse 4]
B            C#m       B
  You’ve got time to kill
            F#m       Abm A     B
you’ve got moves and summer skills
         F#m       Abm A      B
and even so, they sought to bend you
         C#m
to their will


[Chorus]

A                                    B C#m Ebm                               
Still can’t relax and place your words
       E              B            F#m
just pray that this curse too will pass
            B
dead afternoons
         A                E
how the dog days trouble you
          B
and the cruel bite
          A
of the sunlight
        F#m       A      B
how it bends and how it burns
           A            E
and the nightmares reassure
       B
in a clean bed
       A
in a cold sweat
           F#m
you’re forgetting all you learned here with your worst fears all confirmed here


[Outro]

A    B  A

E        B      A      B  A        
Ah-ah ah-ah-ah oohhh
E        B      A      B  A        
Ah-ah ah-ah-ah oohhh
E        B      A      B  A        
Ah-ah ah-ah-ah oohhh
E        B      A      B  A        
Ah-ah ah-ah-ah oohhh
E        B      A      B  A        
Ah-ah ah-ah-ah oohhh         
E        B      A            
Ah-ah ah-ah-ah oohhh
